    Corporate office was great and was supportive, branch management was a nightmare and was demeaning

    Insurance Sales (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsCompany overall has a good business model with a lot of support from the corporate office. Corporate provides complementary online training programs and weekly sales meetings. Very supportive people in corporate marketing and training.

    ConsBranch is new, so no real help or direction from local management. Management has unclear expectations, gives equally unclear instructions, punishes bad news and likes to belittle employees. Training for new agents is non-existent so you have to teach yourself.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees like humans and realize that putting employees down will not motivate them. If employees are not happy they will find work elsewhere.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Agent

    Agent (Former Employee)
    Oak Brook, IL

    ProsEstablished business relationships with the best in class insurance product providers. Allows an agent to manage a client's insurance needs through out theire life cycle.

    ConsHaving multiple product lines can be come somewhat overwhelming when deciding what product line to focus on and then what carriers to use.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the public discloser of everyone's commission statements.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A True "Agent Based" Platform!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Scottsdale, AZ

    Prosfirst company I have ever worked for that is geared towards agent success more than management or home office! It is nice to feel important and have an almost unlimted variety of products to choose from to offer clients the very best. Any career or independent agent would be crazy not to take a look at FFIG as a place to be happy and build their business!

    Conshonestly there are none for me

    Advice to Senior Managementkeep growing, keep being open to feedback, and give agents and managers everything you have so they can be equipped with tools to superstars!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Based place to work, a Company that truly offers it all.

    Branch Manager (Current Employee)
    Oak Brook, IL

    ProsGreat culture and Leadership
    Great compensation package
    Wide variety of carriers to represent
    Easy systems
    Great Marketing Programs

    ConsNot known yet well, but consumers are getting to know us

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote to the experienced agents out there at other Companies what you have to offer more than you do as you have it all. As an agent Futurity offers the best contract and a fun place to work. For most agents, Futurity offers everything that an agent needs to be successfull.

    A Company on the Move

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Rocky Hill, CT

    ProsThe company has grown dramatically this year. Sales have grown 70% and their is a positive energy and enthusiasm that is clear to see. The company has attracted many top agents in the last 12 months by focusing on five things: prospects for agents to see, sales support, great products, easy processes for new business/commission tracking and providing great commissions and incentive trips. Having 2 IMOs under the same 'roof' as a career company provides a HUGE advantage that no other company I know of has.

    ConsThere are many opportunities still untapped by the company, I expect more good stuff to come in 2012.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Family, Team, Great Manager, Great Platform!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Scottsdale, AZ

    ProsLeadership is the best I have ever had! I also think that the payouts are great based upon what you get: housing, training, mentorship, leads, admin support

    Consnone that make a difference
    maybe adding another broker dealer

    Advice to Senior Managementkeep doing what you are doing and we will continue to grow and develop

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
